The end of the War of the Roses!

RIchard IIIKing Richard III,  whose death at the battle of Bosworth Field in 1485 marked the end of the Plantagenet dynasty and ushered in the Tudors, will be laid to rest this week in Leicester Cathedral.

Details on the search for Richard’s remains are on the University of Leicester’s web site here. The Richard III Society, which was also behind the search, has details here. And Britain’s (ridiculous) Daily Mail newspaper has more general coverage here. Oh yes, there was a play about him, too.
